Poverty and Income Inequality in Scotland 2017-20

The latest estimates are from the period between April 2017 and March 2020. This was before the first UK-wide lockdown due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Therefore, these statistics do not yet tell us anything about the impact of the pandemic on poverty and income inequality.

The report is available on the poverty website.
